your experience

The Colosseum is one of Italy’s most popular destinations, attracting over 5 million visitors every year. Believed to have been constructed as a gift from the ancient emperors to the Roman people, this grand outdoor amphitheater once served as the epicenter for entertainment, hosting various public spectacles and games. A stage for gladiator fights, often including animals, the Colosseum has quite the bloody past. Step back in time, marvel at the impressive architecture, and walk the floor of the greatest arena known to mankind.

Your Colosseum ticket also includes entry to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Head to the Roman Forum and travel back in time as you walk along the same paths as the ancient Romans did. You’ll get a chance to witness popular sites including the Temple of Antoninus Pius, Temple of Castor and Pollux, Temple of Saturn, Arch of Septimius Severus, and much more. Palatine Hill offers one of the best views of the city. Once considered the most desirable neighborhood in Rome, Palatine Hill lives on as an extensive archaeological site and was the chosen spot for Emperors to build their homes.

You can tune in to a digital audio guide, narrated by local experts. The guide offers an interactive map of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. As you walk around the venues, tap the area you are exploring to listen to brief commentary dedicated to that spot. Tip: Bring along your earphones for the best audio experience.

  • Note that there are 2 entrances: One for the Colosseum, and another for the Roman Forum & Palatine Hill (combined). You may enter each entrance ONLY ONCE and not re-enter.
